The State of Retail

These closings do not reflect the totality of the area's retail climate, however.  Despite substantial competition from big-box stores such as Walmart and Target and the omnipresent Amazon juggernaut, brick-and-mortar retail does thrive in the region.  

Shopping trends among millennials indicate a greater emphasis on convenience as well as an enhanced face-to-face sales experience forcing retailers to rely on detailed customer data collated from various social media platforms.  The "shopping experience" is driving younger consumers into more of the independently owned businesses that previous generations eschewed for the ease of "one-stop-shopping."

Smart Talk will examine the state of retail in the central counties; we will look at retail real estate and development trends, the shifting purchasing habits in today's retail landscape, what stores are thriving and which stores are dying and we'll ask why some shopping malls are seeing explosive growth (Park City, King of Prussia) and why some are dead on the vine (Fairgrounds, Coventry.)
